This chapter presents a discrete event simulation (DES) model which is built step by step, using Ptolemy II. The elements of the model are explained. After the design decisions have been made, the elements are implemented and integrated into the model being built. In each step of the process, checks and control measures are put in place in order to guarantee the validity of the model in a way that resembles unit testing in programming.
